Load A4, LTR size plain or heavy paper when making sample prints.
Sample Print
The sample print includes the hidden text and the background for each relative contrast value.
The area within the frame on the sample print is the output sample for the currently set relative contrast value.
Relative Contrast
Adjust the relative contrast while comparing the difference between the set standard value and the current latent area density, by referring to the sample print.
If you increase the value for the relative contrast, the background gets denser, and if you decrease the value, the background gets lighter. When you select <White Letters on Colored Bkground.>, if you increase the value for the relative contrast, the text becomes denser, and if you decrease the value, the text becomes lighter.
<Print Settings>
If you select <White Letters on Colored Bkground.>, set the standard value for the density of the text and the latent area density for the density of the background.
<Standard Value Settings>
If you increase the value for the standard value, the background gets denser, and if you decrease the value, the background gets lighter. When <White Letters on Colored Bkground.> is selected, if you increase the standard value, the text gets denser, and if you decrease the value, the text gets lighter.
When changing the adjustment area on the sample print for the relative contrast, specify settings for <Standard Value Settings>.
If you changed the standard value, adjust <Latent Area Density> so that the density of the inner square set in the standard value for the standard value sample print gets closer.
To set a background density that differs from the most even secure watermark image in the standard value sample print, it is necessary to adjust <Latent Area Density> to a density close to the background density.
<Latent Area Density>
If you increase the value for <Latent Area Density>, the text becomes denser, and if you decrease the value, the text becomes lighter. When <White Letters on Colored Bkground.> is selected, if you increase the value in <Latent Area Density>, the background gets denser, and if you decrease the value, the background gets lighter.
